1.54* A disk of radius R rotates at
angular velocity : inside an oil container
of viscosity P, as in Fig. P1.54. Assuming a
linear velocity profile and neglecting shear
on the outer disk edges, derive an expression for the viscous torque on the disk.
Ans.
Fig. P1.54
Solution: At any r d R, the viscous shear W | P:r/h on both sides of the disk. Thus,

Ans
A block of weight W is being pulled
W
over a table by another weight Wo, as shown in
h
Fig. P1.55. Find an algebraic formula for the
steady velocity U of the block if it slides on an
oil film of thickness h and viscosity P. The block
bottom area A is in contact with the oil.
Neglect the cord weight and the pulley friction.
Wo
Fig. P1.55
Solution: This problem is a lot easier to solve than to set up and sketch. For steady motion, there
is no acceleration, and the falling weight balances the viscous resistance of the oil film:
